The Ava Curzon Trilogy, Book 2
by Dominic Selwood
The stakes don’t get any higher
Dr Ava Curzon returns in the breathtaking sequel to bestselling thriller, The Sword of Moses.
When the Turin Shroud is stolen in a violent assault, archaeologist and former spy Dr Ava Curzon is plunged into a desperate struggle against the leader of an apocalyptic Russian cult. Recruited by the UK’s clandestine MI3 intelligence agency – and aided by the Vatican’s security division and her former colleague, Ferguson – Ava is sucked into a world of dark extremism and Biblical secrets.
As the chase catapults her from London to the Vatican, Paris and Jerusalem, she must unravel the mysteries of an ancient icon belonging to the shadowy Order of Malta. With time running out, and military violence in the Middle East the price of failure, the world stands on the brink…
This crypto-thriller from the masterful Dominic Selwood will keep you gripped until the very end.
